DMB, They are ok but way to many drunk people and traffic jams. I can remember some girl selling water at a Dave Matthews show at SPAC on the way out of the venue she was saying something like "all you fake hippie wannabes get your water", not the best sales pitch but funny. It took an extra couple hours to get home because security made us leave a certain way and got stuck in a massive traffic jam.
I love Phish and have been seeing them since 93. Although I didn't see any shows from 99 till Treys comeback tour in 08 (won tix on the radio). I stopped seeing them because the scene started to get really sketchy and not wanting to deal with that influx. Plus the fact that I could catch a band like Galactic,MMW or Govt Mule in a club or theatre and have a more intimate experience with less BS and cheaper. Since 08 I've caught them a few times a year and had a great time at shows, seems things have mellowed out and its more back to the stranger helping strangers thing vs the tweaked out club kids it started to become.
